The Wind Sensor is used to measure the horizontal wind speed. The measured values are output as electrical analog current or voltage signals. They are used to control downstream safety devices for awnings, external blinds, etc.
For winter operation, all devices are equipped with an electronically controlled heating system to prevent the ball bearings and outer rotating parts from freezing. The electrical supply of the wind sensor heating is carried out e.g. with our power supply unit.
When using mounting adapters (angle, cross bar, etc.), a possible influence of turbulence must be taken into account.
Wind Sensor mounting
Mounting can be carried out, for example, on a central mast tube with a PG 21 mounting thread or on brackets or similar with a 29 mm Ø hole. Attention must be paid to obstacles which distort the air flow and influence the measured value.
The flexible control cable LiYCY is led through the hole and the wind sensor is fixed with the hexagon nut (width across flats 36). The electrical connection is carried out according to the wiring diagram.
Attention: Storage, installation and operation under weather conditions is only permitted in a vertical position, otherwise water may penetrate into the device.
When properly installed, the device is maintenance-free. Heavy environmental pollution can cause the Wind Direction Sensor to clog the slot between the rotating and stationary parts. This slot must always be kept clean.
